Rudy Gobert has already played his former team, the Utah Jazz, once this season. But that game was in the French center's new home in Minnesota.

On Friday night, Gobert will return to a place once nicknamed Swat Lake City because of him, where he was affectionately called "The Stifle Tower" and where he earned NBA Defensive Player of the Year three times.

This game between the Jazz and the Timberwolves in Salt Lake City will mark the first time Gobert plays in Utah as the visitor after spending the first nine seasons of his NBA career swatting shots and stifling offenses for the home team.
